Esther Cheah, Siti Safiyah and anchorwomen, Syaidatul Afifah had built up a slender lead of 33 pins from their team-mates, Sin Li Jane, Natasha Roslan and Shalin Zulkifli in the first block earlier today. The trio downed 711 at the start of the second block to extend their lead to 85 pins.
Chinese Taipei's Pan Yu-Fen, Chou Chia-Chen and Tsai Hsin-Yin took over second spot despite only rolling a moderate 672 in their fourth game. Malaysia's other trio stumbled to a low 614 to fall behind the Taiwanese in third.
The pace-setter added 701 in the fifth game as roars and cheers came loud from the Singapore camp. Joey Yeo, Daphne Tan and Bernice Lim fired a stunning 820 in their fifth game to leap frog into third, over-taking the first Malaysian trio.
Chinese Taipei kept their good momentum to stay in second spot with 722. Whilst it appeared that the Singapore trio would pose a threat to the Malaysian leading trio, Cheah, Siti Aafiyah and Syaidatul kept their composure to come home good with 730 to seal the gold medal with 4326.
